Male gonads are under attack. And now men are:
- More likely to be in prison.
- More likely to fail out of school.
- More likely to be murdered.
Why? Because testosterone levels have cratered 20% over 20 years.
Here’s how to fix them:
LOW T SYMPTOMS
Wondering where all the men went? This is the answer.
They’ve disappeared. Men are now 8/10th of what they were 20 years ago.
- Low Energy
- Bad Mood
- Bad sperm quality
- Low muscle growth
- Poor cognitive function
- Low libido.
Men. Testosterone isn’t just for Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds.
It affects every aspect of your life:
- – Improves heart health
- – Supercharges energy
- – Increases sex drive
- – Decreases body fat
- – Increases muscle growth
FIRST…REMOVE T KILLERS
Via negativa: gain by removing
KILLER #1: SEED OILS
This study on 12 men showed that PUFA consumption was associated with lower testosterone . Another observational study of 209 men confirmed the same .
Why are seed oils called seed oils? Because they destroy the male seed.
Manipulation of resistance exercise variables (i.e., intensity, volume, and rest periods) affects the endocrine response to exercise; however, the influence of dietary nutrients on basal and exercise…
KILLER #2: OBESITY
Aromatase is the key enzyme responsible for the synthesis of estrogen. Human fat tissue is a major source of estrogenic activity.
This 2007 study of 1,667 men found “that each one-point increase in BMI was associated with a 2% decrease in testosterone” .
KILLER #3: SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE
This study in 35 men showed that men drinking soy isolate when exercising led to a drop in testosterone levels . Exercise usually increases testosterone, illustrating how much soy damages men’s testosterone production.
KILLER #4: DRUGS & ALCOHOL
While some of the manliest men in the world consumed substantial amounts of drugs. This study showed that 2 to 3 drinks a day decreased testosterone levels by 7% in men over 3 weeks
KILLER: #5 XENOESTROGENS & PLASTICS
Xenoestrogens are endocrine disrupting chemicals that damage testosterone levels. They act like hormones, affecting your natural production. Some can even turn on a switch that upregulates estrogen productio
KILLER #6: PORN
This is more of a CA life hack than something backed by randomized controlled trials. But porn is a masculinity zapper.
Our ancestors (the non-Don Juan ones at least), were not consistently exposed to nudity. So close those 45 tabs of nude women
KILLER #7: GLYPHOSATE & ATRAZINE
Glyphosate and Atrazine are the two most common herbicides used for commercial agriculture.
Glyphosate reduced testosterone and disrupted the progression of puberty
Atrazine, another widely used pesticide, turned 10% of male frogs to females
Now for some NATURAL TESTOSTERONE BOOSTERS
#1: ZINC & MAGNESIUM
30mg of zinc improved testosterone levels in this study.
Mg also plays a very important role as it’s involved in the synthesis of all proteins The highest levels of testsosterone are often found in those exercising and taking magnesium
#2 VITAMIN A & BEEF LIVER
Rats deficient in Vitamin A have decreased testosterone production.
Additionally, the B vitamins, like B3, B6, Folate and B12 all affect testosterone.
Beef liver is the best (& one of the only) source of these vitamins
Men in this study who consumed organ meats had a 52% higher sperm count, even though they were already eating red meat.
The future generations of the world will all be carnivorous, organ meat eaters.
#3 SUN YOUR BALLS
Sunscreen is practically birth control for men…
Avoiding the sun and / or using UVB blocking sunscreen will prevent you from getting sufficient vit d.
This study showed that sunning balls INCREASED testosterone 200%
Now that’s nuts.
#4 EAT TESTICLES
Your ancestors knew that “like supports like”. Eating testicles, will help to support your testicles.
Ancient olympians ate animal testicles to get ahead.
Preferably from a dead animal…
#6 LIFT HEAVY WEIGHTS
This study found that lifting weights increased testosterone even more than losing body fat.
Testosterone production is like a muscle in a way. If you don’t need to be strong, why would your body make you strong? You need to wake it the F up.
#7 ACCOMPLISH THINGS
Human beings are under more hormonal control than they realize.
Testosterone doesn’t help with drive. It IS YOUR DRIVE.
The more you accomplish and signal to your body that youre getting ahead, the more testosterone you’ll produce
#8 REDUCE STRESS
The flip side of this is cortisol. When you get defeated, testosterone will fall and cortisol will rise.
If you always have a victim mindset and are stressed, your testosterone will be suppressed.
If you don’t meditate, it’s time to get started.
Without adequate bioavailable amino acid intake, you cannot build muscle mass & testosterone.
Most people are deficient in many of the essential amino acids only found in animal foods.
Total protein doesn’t matter as much as adequate essential amino acid intake
#10 UP YOUR CHOLESTEROL & FAT
Cholesterol is necessary precursor to all steroid hormone production.
Additionally, low fat diets are associated with low testosterone.
This is a big reason why my testosterone increased on the carnivore diet.
Testosterone increases as you sleep and decrease the longer you’re awake.
Morning wood anyone??
The highest levels of testosterone production occur during REM sleep
In this study, sleep restriction decreased T almost 20% at certain pts throughout the day
